84 charing cross road

This book-lovers film centres on an aspiring New York screenwriter and voracious reader (in an exuberant turn by Anne Bancroft) who befriends the stodgy but warm-hearted owner of an antique book store in London (Anthony Hopkins). Their platonic relationship, which evolves over the years through letters, is marked by kindness and intellectual curiosity. She is an example of a woman who leads an extraordinarily ordinary life.
